Re: Rare! Pre-Ban Belgium FAL

Looks like “kisses” behind the ejection port to me. Unfired?

Nice butt. If I have time this weekend to dig it out and snap some pix and post them. Hopefully the board will be back up by then.

Re: Guy with the loose Israeli GB on a DSA barrel reporting back

I used a Belgian open ear gas block(from Brad) on Argentine lugged bbl last year for a Izzy build. As stated above, the Izzy sight parts will work.

Okay, I can't get my pics to show up. Probably going to change them over to the black furniture if I can't get the wood stuff to hold together. The wood is kind of coming apart where the butt plate is. Maybe I can get some epoxy sealer on it.
Reach out to yellowhand for all your wood needs.

Kit Parkerizing

Been waiting a couple of years for the DSA Aussie uppers and now that I have one I tore the Aussie rifle down for a rebuild on a new upper. The kit was a CAI build that someone had painted green and then black. I stripped all the paint off the bbl and other small parts down to the park. The kit orig...

Re: My first FAL how did I do ?

Man why did you have to post that picture thats a good looking rifle how do you like the folding stock ? TBH I much prefer the DSA BRS to the tube folder. Below is a older pic of my other L1A1 para. Short gas 16” BBL OAL with FH(made by Adam762) It now has a tube folder on it and the BRS is on the ...

I think that the follower is the issue. You know that you can’t use 5.56 ammo with a .223 follower.

Re: My first FAL how did I do ?

Here’s one of my Brit paras. Built on Argentine upper. DSA sells FAL folding charging handles. https://i.imgur.com/W2bA8BA.jpg You can use a L1A1 lower to make a para. You’ll need an conversion kit and cut the tang off. Adam762 use to make these, you’ll have to wait until the FAL Files is back up to...

Re: Metric type CH on an Inch cut receiver?

If the receiver is cut for folding charging handle, I do believe that a FAL handle will fit but it will not stay in the forward position because the divot where the detent engages the receiver has been milled off for the folder. If it’s cut for folding charging handle you need to use a commonwealth ...

Re: Magazine Catch Spring issue

Pretty sure the L1A1 spring is longer also, it’d been a while since I’ve had either spring in my hand. I seem to remember using a small ball bearing in the spring pocket with a FAL spring until tracking down the L1A1 spring. That's interesting...one of mine had/has an issue with "dumping" certain m...

Re: Indian 1A1 lower

I ask because I have a nice butt stock with “524” stamped underneath the ferrule. It’s excess to my needs and wanted to see if anyone had a lower with SN ending in 524 before I listed it in the MP once the FF is back up and running.

https://i.imgur.com/jLavgkI.jpg Great price on these kits. Paid $549 for this one from DSA in November ‘18. Got the DSA Izzy upper in December of ‘18 and twisted it up in January of ‘19. Sadly it’s only been to the range once. Need a #2 or #3 front sight post to get it zeroed. Found them on GB but ...
